Why Make This Recipe

Single serve oatmeal is easy to whip up and no overindulgence since it’s single serve (all to yourself no sharing, yes please!) You can customize the mix-ins. I love this recipe with fresh blueberries or chocolate chips. This recipe has minimal, wholesome ingredients and the protein powder addition will help keep you fueled for longer. I suggest making this in the air fryer but the oven will also work great. This recipe is so easy to whip up, you can make it ahead of time as well.

Ingredients Needed

Single Serve Baked Oatmeal Ingredients

Old Fashioned Oats.

Banana. You can sub applesauce

Protein Powder. Optional but recommended to help keep you full and flavor these oats! I use this one currently.

Coconut Oil. Or you can use peanut butter

Almond Milk.

Baking Powder. To help keep things together and fluffy.

Chocolate Chips. Or any mix in of choice ~ dried fruit, nuts and so on.

Steps To Make

Step One. Put everything into a medium size bowl. Get the oven to temp if baking at 350º. Use a spatula or simply mix with your hands (this is what I do). Once everything is evenly mixed, form the mix into a ball/cookie shape and place it on a small piece of parchment paper.

Step Two. Bake in the air fryer on 375º for about 6 – 8 minutes. Oven for about 10-15 minutes. Let the cookie cool, it will need this time to set. Then transfer to a bowl or plate and dig in!

FAQ’s & Tips

Do I have to use protein

No, it is optional but it will give this recipe a great flavor and help keep you fuller for longer.

Can I make this gluten free?

Make this gluten free by using certified gluten free ingredients like oats and the protein powder.

What can I use other than chocolate chips?

If you want to skip chocolate chips, you can use any flavor of chips (butterscotch, white chocolate, peanut butter) or fruit mix ins, nuts and so on. The options are endless.

Which is best? Air fryer or oven?

Air fryer vs oven, I prefer the air fryer for this one, it gives it a perfect, even bake and it’s ready super quick!

Make Ahead & Storage Tips

Make ahead tips. You can make the batter ahead of time! Keep the dough in a glass bowl with a plastic wrap cover in the fridge until you are ready to bake or air fry. Just be sure to only let it sit for 24 hours, the banana may turn brown if you don’t cook it soon.

Storage tips. If you want to make a few of these for meal prep, just store them in an airtight container in the fridge and pop one out in the microwave when you are ready to enjoy.

    For the first time, I tried the recipe last week. Somehow I already knew I would love it, so I prepared a double batch. Guess what?! I LOVED them!! I substituted glazed walnuts for the chocolate chips. Much to my delight, my husband never tried them. More for me! My new breakfast food. So good. Thank you 😊🙏🏼‼️

    These are so good I’ve been making them the last few weeks on my work from home days. I love that it’s single serve!

  6. Can you make more than one at a time? Can they be stored in the freezer?
